πŸ“£πŸš¨ Dolly Parton Stands Alone at the National Conference of State Legislatures

The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), which works β€œto sharpen the skills of lawmakers and legislative staff in every state,” is holding its annual summit from Aug 5-8 in Nashville. The current line up of featured speakers includes Dolly and 7 β€” count β€˜em β€” 7 dudes and no women of color. NCSL needs to correct this imbalance.

Let’s get started early while they still have time to show they value 51% of the population state legislators represent. They do have time to fix this.

πŸ“£πŸš¨ Hey @NCSLorg, there’s only 1 woman on your featured speaker list for #NCSLSummit. 1 out of 8 is pathetic, but there’s still time to fix it. Do better! #GenderAvenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/dolly-parton-stands-alone
